    Good post, but in one part you only put iPhone 4 as having a processor, the 3GS didn't have one. Also if you do add it, make sure to have the GHz

    Is the A4 chip in the iPhone 4 1.0GHz, like the iPad?

    I think so. Its the same chip as in the iPad.
    The processor speed is 1GHz.

    There is no comparison... iPhone 4 dominates the iPhone 2G/3G/3GS... Enough said.

    It's just to help does find what they need. They can go with the 3GS for the price if they don't need the 4's features.

    I'm not sure if it was mentioned, but does anyone know the iPhone 4 RAM?

    Why compare them when everything in the iPhone 4 is going to be better? It's pointless.

    The only thing you could compare is the design of the two iPhones. Personally, I don't like the iPhone 4 much.
